Join the Family Resource Network for an afternoon of FUN at our February social event for individuals with OPWDD eligibility and their families. Come to this playful class where participants can move energy through their bodies and bring calmness into their minds. This class combines the use of music, breathing techniques, and yoga-based movements. Yoga poses can easily be practiced with individuals of varying functioning levels, ages and challenges. Yoga techniques relieve stress and anxiety in all populations. No prior yoga experience is necessary. Participants should wear comfortable clothing. Bring a yoga mat if you have one, otherwise, mats will be available for your use during class.
